About The Book

" I believe God is not finished with either of us. Tomorrow is a good day."
— Anthony to Laurie

When her father was murdered, Laurie Coombs sought justice and found it. His murderer now serves two life sentences with no possibility of parole. Yet, despite the swift punishment of the killer, Laurie found herself increasingly full of pain, bitterness and anger she couldn't control. After coming to faith, she realized she was being called to seek something infinitely more difficult than justice--forgiveness.

This is an extraordinary true story of grace, mercy and the redemptive power of God to change lives. The reader is swept along with Laurie as she undergoes the life changing transformation of becoming a Christian. As she studies Scripture, seeing God redeeming losses and healing deep wounds time and time again, she starts to understand that her own healing would require her to love her enemy in a real, practical way.

Using her incredible correspondence with the man who killed her father, Laurie reveals a compelling journey of transformation, not only in her life, but in the lives of those whom many would call irredeemable.

Letters from My Father's Murderer is for any audience Christian or secular who Craves freedom from the inability to forgive those who've caused them harm. Wants to hear testimony of God's power in our obedience. Has experienced pain through other's sin against them. Needs to know healing is always possible.

The real story here is not primarily about murder and its fallout, but rather about redemption and how far it can reach.
